Let’s eat local.

Spinning off the successful Canadian Eats campaign that has featured inspired local dishes since 2017, food lovers this year will be able sink their teeth into something new – Glebe Eats! The event will celebrate signature dishes and fan favourites that our neighbourhood restaurants are known for. There will be delights to enjoy in the comfort of your home through takeout or with others inside the restaurant or outside on patios (after COVID restrictions are lifted).

For 10 days beginning in beginning in late June/early July, depending on provincial restrictions, diners are invited to take in or take out some of the best food in the city. Participating Glebe restaurants are set to wow your tastebuds with a signature dish, a menu item they are proud of and captures the essence of what they do in their kitchens. These bistros and eateries have formed a collective Glebe Eats menu that you can now browse at

Whether you’re dining in, enjoying lunch on a patio or taking dinner home for the family, there are plenty of options to browse on the Glebe Eats menu. With restaurants closed since early April, we know just how eager you must be to get out and support your favourite Glebe restaurants. They’re just as exci

ted to see you.

As an extra bonus, for customers who use the Getit Local delivery service, delivery costs will be waived throughout the promotion. (Please note, free delivery is dependent on whether the restaurant also subscribes to the service.)

It has been a difficult year for businesses trying to navigate the pandemic, and restaurants are no exception. Here is a great opportunity to help support the local economy and the charming, vibrant neighbourhood you love so much. Merchants need help now more than ever; it takes a village, after all.

So, what are you waiting for? Browse the menu and let our chefs do the cooking. Download the Getit Local delivery app and order in tonight. Visit to browse the full menu or for more information.
